Bluetooth Low Energy: The Developer's Handbook based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Are you an engineer, application developer, designer or marketing specialist, who is thinking about developing a product that incorporates Bluetooth low energy? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Robin Heydon, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that is a complete developer's handbook to how Bluetooth low energy technology came about, why it was designed, the way it was designed and how it works. Author Heydon, begins with a brief introduction to Bluetooth low energy, and discusses its design goals. Then, the author discusses the foundations upon which the low energy architecture was designed. Next, he introduces the main system architecture fir low energy, from the controller, through the host, and up to the applications. The author also describes the new usage models that the low energy technology enables. He continues by showing you how devices communicate wirelessly with one another. Next, he highlights the Direct Test Mode and its role in performing low-cost, tome-efficient testing of the radio. The author also introduces the lowest layers of protocol that describe packets, advertising, and how to create a connection. He continues by describing the interface that hosts can use to talk with a controller and get it to do useful things. Then, the author describes the multiplexing layer. Next, he explains how a stateless protocol can be used to obtain the state of a device efficiently. The author also discusses the main body of the protocol that is used to provide security services. He continues by tying all of the pieces of the puzzle together into a high level abstraction that application writers can use. Next, he shows you how an application can use Bluetooth low energy to interact with peripherals. The author also explains how a peripheral can be designed to make the best use of the Bluetooth low energy technology. Finally, he explains how to qualify a design so that it can be sold or distributed. This most excellent book covers the details of how the complete system works, from the physical radio waves up to the discovery of, connection with, and interface provided by that device. Perhaps more importantly, this great book provides the background of why Bluetooth low energy was designed; the design tools it tried to achieve; and, how you can take something that radically changes the way you can think of wireless technology and implement it in everything else.
